"Wearable Electronics". A concept you are probably not familiar with, but is enticing enough to capture your attention. Wearable technology, technology under the skin, is a concept devised by inventor Jim Mielke for the Greener Gadgets Design Competition. The idea is a Digital Tattoo Interface, which is physically inserted under the skin and muscle. It will also be able to communicate with other devices utilising Bluetooth technology.
The power is produced through two small tubes attached to the device which are subsequently fastened to an artery and a vein which converted glucose and oxygen into electricity. If you think that's clever, the device will also use a touch screen interface, allowing you to manipulate the controls through your own skin via microscopic spheres.
If you have a tattoo through this device, you can simply change it via any other Bluetooth enabled device, to go with your clothing, for example. At this stage it remains a concept only, but a working prototype is certainly worth waiting for. It truly is a concept which will get under your skin.
